My word be that goes out from My mouth;
it shall not return to Me empty.” 
Isaiah 55:11

Thou You were sinning, O man, in darkness and in the shadow of death
through ignorance of truth.
You were sitting bound by the chains of sin.
He came down to your prison not to torture you,
but to rescue you from the power of darkness.
And first the Teacher of truth dispelled the darkness of ignorance
by the light of His wisdom.
Then by the righteousness of faith, he loosed the bonds of sin,
freely justifying the sinner.

Bernard of Clairvaux, 11th century
